From attacking Mahatma Gandhi to calling Arvind Kejriwal a “terrorist”, BJP leaders have breached all norms in public utterances.

Continuous hate speech by leaders is clearly the “new normal” in the BJP.

  Union Minister Prakash Javdekar labelled Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a “terrorist”.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stuck to the “tukde-tukde gang" narrative in his various public meetings Delhi Assembly polls.

“Kejriwal makes an innocent face now and wants to know why he is being called a terrorist. You are a terrorist; there is plenty of proof. Not so long ago, he referred to himself as an ‘anarchist’.

There is not much difference between an anarchist and a terrorist,” said Javdekar who is central in-charge of elections in Delhi.

The UP CM, on his part, accused Kejriwal of opposing all “nationalist” moves by the BJP, especially the repeal of Article 370.

Arvind Kejriwal has become a “toy in the hands of antisocial and anti-India elements”.

“He obstructed the development of Delhi. And knowingly and unknowingly, he became a toy in the hands of anti-social and anti-India elements,” Adityanath said.

This commentary ran alongside BJP MP from Karnataka Anant Kumar Hegde’s apparent attack on Mahatma Gandhi.

Hegde described India’s independence struggle as an “adjustment” with the then British rulers.

Freedom fighters who did not sacrifice anything made the country believe that it attained independence through ‘Upavas Satyagrah’.

“They pleaded (with the British) it’s enough if you properly take care of us, nothing more than that,” he said.

Amit Shah continues to deliver provocative remarks including Shaheen Bagh.

Amit Shah urged the people to press the EVM button in the February 8 polls with such force that the "current" was felt in Shaheen Bagh.

As polls draw near, the BJP has not only trained all its guns on Shaheen Bagh, but also made it dirty with communal war cries.
